The live-action Titans series is beginning to take shape, thanks to the recent casting of Teagan Croft as Raven. With the 13-year-old actress being a relative unknown to western audiences, Croft recently took some time to introduce herself to the world of DC Comics fans.
Croft took to Twitter to thank everyone for their kind words, saying that she's "super excited to be Raven" and "can't wait to get started" on the series, which begins filming this fall. Attached to the tweet is a rather awesome photo of her reading up on Raven.
